Cork It

Hello Lovelies! I hope you're having a great weekend! What am I up to? Oh nothing, just taking a leisurely fingertip stroll through the online retail haven of my computer. It's a great pass time, don't you think? One of my http:// "pit" stops was Lulu's since I haven't gandered at their lovely items in a while. Shame on me for not visiting them as often as I should! They have so many great things--how could I forget to stop by the site to say hi--naughty naughty.

In my reuniting with the brand, I fell in love with this cork tote and these strappy wedges. They would be perfect for spring/summer with floral maxi dresses, weathered skinny jeans, and anything thinner than the heavy layers I've been wearing all winter long. Notice a trend amongst the two? I didn't realize it at first but after looking them over an unusual texture graces both of them. Did you guess what it is? If you guessed cork then you are correct! Two snaps for you!

This neutral print most associated with bottling wine adds a vision of interest to decor, but in fashion can it really go beyond the typical cork wedge shoe? I never thought about it much before, but maybe--just maybe there was something to this whole cork thing. On my mission to find more cork styles, I came across six fabulous items I think you would approve!

What do you think? Could cork be the new nude?

  1. It's very possible! It's definitely workable for Spring especially with stripes & nautical themed outfits :)

  2. I love anything cork! I had a cork belt that I left in a hotel room years and years ago...that to this day I still miss.

    And my very favorite pumps are this pair of 9 West round toed pumps (http://thumbnail.image.rakuten.co.jp/@0_mall/sanhanyon/cabinet/nwst/157-0.gif) that I love, love, love! So comfortable and my only regret is that I didn't buy two pairs!

    Cork, and especially cork shoes, are a great neutral that go with ANYTHING!
    Happy cork shopping!
